Return to Campus

Normal-ish. That’s the vision of campus life that Babson is striving toward for fall 2021.

To reach that goal, all students are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 to return to campus, and faculty and staff will be strongly encouraged to get their vaccine as well.

Please note that in order to be fully vaccinated for the start of the 2021–2022 academic year, students should schedule their vaccination as soon as possible.

A vaccinated community will enable us to safely return to enjoying the things we once took for granted. Lunch at the same table with friends and coworkers. Fans cheering in the stands at sporting events. An in-person graduation celebration that includes lots of hugging family and friends.

What to Expect for Summer and Fall 2021

Getting there will take all of us working together as One Babson.

Of course, even as we look ahead to returning to traditional moments, we do so with the appreciation that many new practices should be carried forward as best practices.

Across campus, we will continue with rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols, enhanced ventilation and air filtration indoors, the ability to rapidly pivot according to the latest public-health data, engaging virtually with prospective students, and capitalizing on the best aspects of online and hybrid teaching to deliver to deliver education where and when learners demand it.

Current policies are evolving with federal, state, and local public health guidance, and updated health and safety protocols are being piloted throughout the summer. We will continue to provide updates as decisions are made, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Babson this fall.
